AFSA Presents Webinar: “NItrogen Use for Inhibiting Galvanic Electrochemical and MIC in Fire Protection Systems”

The American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) is pleased to offer this webinar on “Nitrogen Use for Inhibiting Galvanic Electrochemical and MIC in Fire Protection SystemsWednesday, August 31, 2011, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Central

Nitrogen Use for Inhibiting Galvanic Electrochemical and MIC in Fire Protection Systems
Corrosion in Fire Protection Systems causes detrimental and costly leaks that can render the life-saving system ineffective in the event of a fire. Supervisory compressed air continuously adds moisture into systems, a key ingredient for corrosion. Nitrogen, a clean, dry, inert, non-flammable gas, will remove residual moisture left within piping and successfully inhibit corrosion.

This 1.5-hour webinar will be presented for FREE to all AFSA members, as part of the AFSA Economic Relief program introduced August 1, 2009 now extended through December 2011.
